Club in ‘advanced talks’ to sign NUFC winger but Bruce may be stuck with Toon trio – Report

According to The Chronicle, Huddersfield Town are now ‘close’ to signing Rolando Aarons.

The winger had agreed to join The Terriers over the summer, only for his permanent move to break down at the 11th hour as they ran out of time to complete the deal on deadline day.

Since then, Huddersfield chairman Phil Hodgkinson has confirmed that Aarons was their “top target” and it seems they’re now close to finally getting their man, with Mark Douglas confirming they are in ‘advanced talks’ to sign the 25-year-old.

On the subject of outgoings, it’s common knowledge that Christian Atsu, Henri Saivet and Achraf Lazaar have been transfer listed after missing out on Bruce’s 25-man squad, but The Chronicle report that their sizeable wage demands have ‘torpedoed efforts to move them on’ so far.

With all three out of contract at the end of the season, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the club allowed them to move on a free this month to simply relieve us of the ‘six figure sum’ we’re said to be paying them each week to simply train!

So, Aarons out, no takers for Atsu, Saivet and Lazaar as of yet and incoming loan deals “bubbling away” but proving tough based on Bruce’s latest comments.

With funds appearing to be tight and little space in and around the squad, let’s hope we manage to move on some deadwood this month.
